Knoxville, Tenn. - On Wednesday, April 20, Invisible Fence® Brand of Colorado donated a total of 48 pet oxygen mask kits to the Denver, Colorado fire department – and the donation event made Yahoo! News.
To celebrate last week’s donation, the department hosted an event at 10 a.m. at Fire Station 5, located at 999 South Clermont in Glendale, Colorado.
This donation was just a small part of Invisible Fence® Brand’s Project Breathe, which was established with the goal of equipping every fire station in America and Canada with pet oxygen masks. These masks allow firefighters to give oxygen to pets who are suffering from smoke inhalation when they are rescued from fires.
In April, Invisible Fence® Brand will celebrate Project Breathe Month by donating more than 1,300 masks to more than 20 fire departments in Houston, Denver, Columbus, Miami and Las Vegas, just to name a few.
By the end of the month, Invisible Fence® Brand will have donated a total of more than 10,000 pet oxygen masks to fire stations all over the U.S. and Canada throughout the life of the program. A reported 50+ pets have been saved by the donated masks so far, including two pets saved on April 1 in Willoughby, Ohio.
The company has set up a website, www.invisiblefence.com/O2, where people or companies can support the effort.
Invisible Fence® Brand pet containment and avoidance systems are produced by Radio Systems Corporation and have a 98.5% success rating, according to Invisible Fence Brand. For more information, visit www.invisiblefence.com.
